Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The first volume devoted exclusively to German inner colonialism from the Polish frontier in the 1850s until the present day, theseinterdisciplinary essays are a signal contribution to scholarship onGerman continental empires, including the Third Reich. " - A. Dirk Moses, University of Sydney

"For a while now, German historians have been remarking upon the congruencies and complicated reciprocities between Germany s imperialist designs on Eastern Europe during the two world wars and the earlier history of overseas colonialism before 1914. Delivering historical depth, focus, and conceptual coherence, this fine collection of essays now gives chapter and verse for that claim. Nelson and his contributors match a challenging general argument about the nature of colonialism to a series of admirably persuasive case studies." - Geoff Eley, Karl Pohrt Distinguished University Professor of Contemporary History and Chair, Department of History, University of Michigan
